Dr. Sowell defines urgency of GOP Senate victory

September 17, 2014

In 66 words, the genius of Thomas Sowell illuminates

“Despite TV pundits who say that public opinion polls show Barack Obama is in trouble, the president is not in the slightest trouble. He is doing whatever he feels like doing, regardless of the Constitution and regardless of how many people don’t like it, because he is virtually impeachment-proof. The country is in huge trouble and real danger because of his policies, but he is not.”


Jeff Flake, NM Dem: Senate Refugees from Reality

September 12, 2014

“Bipartisanship” convenient ruse as Sens. Jeff Flake, Martin Heinrich ask Discovery to feature them in reality show

Initially, it appeared to be an absurdity too foolish to consider authentic, but when narcissistic Jeff Flake is involved, the absurd becomes commonplace, so it begged a second look.

In the midst of a massive illegal invasion of our homeland, raging global turmoil, gruesome beheadings of American journalists by depraved radical Islamic terrorists who are also issuing threats against major cities in the United States, it would appear that U.S. Senators would have more to do than head to a deserted island to preen before cameras. It’s been widely reported that our porous southern border is a major portal for those intending harm to this country. Yet Republicrat Flake and leftist Martin Heinrich, both border state senators, have been outspoken amnesty supporters who bear responsibility for the sieve-like border. Flake momentarily veers right when campaigning, but swings back to open-border mode immediately after election day.

Odd that these senators conveniently take a self-promoting hike, when the going they aid and abet, gets tough.

Arizonans have previously witnessed these preening antics with Jeff Flake. The perennially smirking guy with a propensity for bleaching his locks and sending shirtless pics of himself, is no stranger to deserted islands. He’s made a sideline of chronicling his egotistical high jinx.

Senators Flake and Heinrich released this bizarre statement regarding their self-serving venture: “Both of us know just how frustrated people are with Washington right now. We can both attest that no one is more frustrated than those of us trying to get things done in this environment. We recognize how difficult it can be to cut through the partisanship. So we decided to do something completely out of the ordinary and frankly a little extreme to show the world and our colleagues that even if you have serious differences, if you want to survive you have to work together.”

According to Entertainment Weekly’s promo of the show, “Rival Survival,” the duo “were dropped on the island of Eru, Marshall Islands. Using only limited resources and their wits, the pair must work together in a harsh environment as they attempt to spear fish, build shelter and find enough water to survive for one week.”

Clever contrivance, but isn’t there real work to be done? American citizens deserve more for that $174,000 base salary (not including benefits, allowances and perks) we’re paying you.  Try talking to us instead of catching crabs.


AZ Amnesty pushers McCain, Flake, engage in outrageous deception

September 10, 2014

Duo claim they want full-scale border prosecutions

In the face of terrorist threats against the United States, Arizona Sens. John McCain and his duplicitous doppelganger Jeff Flake are attempting to perpetrate the most outrageous act of deception.

Recent news has been rife with fearsome reports that the United State’s porous southern border is a portal allowing ease of access to terrorist groups that intend to bring destruction to American cities. Threats have been issued by militant Islamic jihadists, and warnings of impending devastating attacks have even been sent to American authorities by Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah.

Arizonans know all too well that the most enthusiastic supporters of amnesty and keeping our border accessible to hordes of illegal invaders have been the double-talking and bogus tricksters, John McCain and Jeff Flake.  

If your memory needs refreshing click on the links under their names to remember that both campaigned for the U.S. Senate as border hawks and immediately after election reverted to their amnesty stance, even forming the so-called bipartisan Gang of Eight, to push for amnesty and keep our country vulnerable.

We’ve covered the treacherous charlatans often.

Now the duplicitous duo are feigning concern that a federal program they claim has driven down incoming illegal aliens in the Yuma sector is being scaled back as the Obama administration plans to stop prosecuting illegals, focusing only on criminals and those who have previously been deported.  In a great display of showmanship, McCain and Flake have sent this letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asking that he reconsider his actions —– actions that have been in effect since Aug. 18, 2011, as the administration bowed to intense pressure from amnesty advocates.

Flake is quoted in the stridently pro-open border Arizona Republic claiming there is almost “universal agreement” that the program known as Operation Streamline has stemmed the tide of illegal immigration in the Yuma Sector.

“Some people think it’s too harsh —- you’ll get some of the immigration activists who protested against it —- but I think everybody has recognized the effectiveness of it,” Flake said. “In Yuma, that’s been what everybody points to when they talk about policies that work. To just turn away from that is really troubling.”

What is actually “really troubling” is that these two deceivers think Arizona citizens are foolish enough to think they have changed their long-standing positions one iota. When it comes to border security, these men are loathsome liars, who are merely playing a CYA game in the face of terrorist threats and shamefully doing so the day before the thirteenth anniversary of September 11th.  


Vulnerable Dems hope for relief as Obama delays amnesty

September 6, 2014

Executive action, bypassing congress, is back-burnered until after election

In an acknowledgment of the negative impact his widespread amnesty policies are having on Democrat congressional candidates, Barack Obama, in a hasty response to desperate pleas of vulnerable Democrats, is reneging on his vow to impose the ruinous program by the end of summer. Being on the receiving end of the wrath of illegal aliens and their supporters is less important to the radical leftist than losing control of the U.S. Senate.

In this June 30th speech, filled with bogus claims, Obama pledged to do an end-run around congress and impose amnesty “without further delay.” Obama also requested congress pony up $3.7 billion to implement the disastrous strategy —- earmarked to fund health care, schooling and lawyers for the illegal immigrant children flooding across our southern border. The request was denied.  Now he is faced with distressed calls from his formerly complicit Democrats, asking him to back off.

Dem Sens. Mark Begich (Alaska), Kay Hagan, (N.C.), Mary Landrieu (Louisiana),  and Mark Pryor (Arkansas), are among those facing tough reelection campaigns.

New ISIS threat: America’s electric grid

September 6, 2014

Washington Examiner’s ‘Washington’s Secrets’ columnist Paul Bedard has written a disturbing report regarding our nation’s vulnerability as it relates to a potential threat to the electrical power grid and the dire effects that would accompany such an attack. Due to the urgency of the topic, we have reprinted the report in its entirety:

Former top government officials who have been warning Washington about the vulnerability of the nation’s largely unprotected electric grid are raising new fears that troops from the jihadist Islamic State are poised to attack the system, leading to a power crisis that could kill millions.

“Inadequate grid security, a porous U.S.-Mexico border, and fragile transmission systems make the electric grid a target for ISIS,” said Peter Pry, one of the nation’s leading experts on the grid.

Others joining Pry at a press conference later Wednesday to draw attention to the potential threat said that if just a handful of the nation’s high voltage transformers were knocked out, blackouts would occur across the country.

“By one estimate, should the power go out and stay out for over a year, nine out of 10 Americans would likely perish,” said Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy in Washington.

At the afternoon press conference, Gaffney dubbed the potential crisis the “grid jihad.”

A lack of electricity would shut off water systems, impact city transportation services and shutdown hospitals and other big facilities. Fresh and frozen foods also would be impacted as would banks, financial institutions and utilities.

Pry provided details of recent attacks on electricity systems and said that ISIS could easily team with Mexican drug cartels to ravage America.  He told Secrets, for example, that the Knights Templar drug gang blacked out the electric grid of the Mexican state of Michoacan in 2013 to provide cover for killing those fighting the drug trade.

“The Knights Templars and other criminal gangs in Mexico will do anything for money, and ISIS, the richest terrorist organization in history, has hundreds of millions of dollars at its disposal,” said Pry. “ISIS could hire one of the Mexican cartels, or one of their criminal gangs already in the U.S., or activate jihadist terror cells already in the U.S., and inflict a multi-state blackout immediately, within days or weeks. Perhaps even a nationwide blackout,” Pry explained to Secrets.

“I am not saying it is likely they will do so. But given the capabilities and objectives of ISIS and our obvious vulnerabilities, it would be foolish to ignore the threat to the grid, to regard the threat as unlikely. Our planning should be based on imminent asymmetrical threats, and not assume that another 9/11 large-scale attack is years away,” he added.

The Texas Department of Public Safety recently said they believe there is evidence that ISIS plans an attack.

 Pry, Gaffney and others have been pushing Congress to protect the electric grid from attacks including terrorists, assaults by U.S. foes like North Korea and even sun spots that can zap unprotected transformers with electromagnetic pulse.

Congress is looking at legislation to protect the grid via the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act.


Islamic State beheads another American citizen

September 3, 2014

Fanatical Muslims who make up the Islamic State militants released a video on Tuesday showing the barbaric beheading of another American hostage, 31-year-old journalist Steven Sotloff.

On Aug. 19, the man in the now all too familiar orange jumpsuit was American journalist James Foley. Prior to his gruesome decapitation, Daniel Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter, was executed in the same savage manner in Pakistan in 2002. That brutal act was followed by another in 2004 as Nick Berg, 26, seeking employment as an independent contractor in Iraq, was beheaded. In each case, video recordings of their executions were released as propaganda devices, and used to instill fear of the grisly resurgence of this historical Islamic practice.

During his 2007 visit to the Muslim nation of Turkey, Barack Obama declared, “the U.S. is not, and will never be at war with Islam.” It appears his message isn’t reciprocal. There have been no denunciations of these vicious acts from American Muslim clerics or the community at large.

In a recent statement, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel conceded, “ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, [along with] a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well- funded. This is beyond anything that we have seen. So we must prepare for everything.”

Congressman Mike Rogers, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee tells Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, “Our fear here is that this notion if we just don’t do anything, everything is going to be okay, is going to continue. This is as dangerous a threat matrix as I have ever seen in my time on the intel committee, which is about ten years. It is serious.” U.S. Rep. Rogers discusses our options with Chris Wallace on Sunday.

Between rounds of golf with sports celebrities and Democrat fundraising soirees, President Barack Obama took time out to divulge, “We don’t have a strategy yet.”

The consequences of the leader of the free world admitting the U.S. has no coherent strategy for dealing with these fanatical and murderous international thugs who follow the Quranic 47:4 imperative to “strike the necks” of unbelievers,” are too awful to contemplate.

And still our unsecured border remains a portal for those who mean us harm to fulfill their promise of bringing terror to the Untied States.


Pollster: AZ’s 2014 Guv race a squeaker

September 1, 2014

GOP state treasurer Doug Ducey, Leftist lobbyist Fred DuVal said to be in a 40% tie

Assessing the upcoming Arizona Governor’s race, Rasmussen Reports refers to the results of a new survey of 850 likely voters released Sunday, using the words “dead heat” and “toss-up.”

The Arizona Republic newspaper is engaging in similar whimsy. In a front page article the headline crows, “Dems see excellent chance to win state’s top offices.” The hard-left daily acknowledges Arizona Democrats lost every statewide race in 2010. With Obama’s own flagging numbers currently in free fall, savvy political watchers would not be likely to place large bets on a major leftward shift. 

The upcoming election offers voters a real choice of repudiating the Obama brand of liberalism exemplified by career liberal Fred DuVal or moving forward with a Republican at the helm of state. Although lame duck Gov. Jan Brewer jubilantly stood with Doug Ducey on election night, she endorsed his squish opponent Scott Smith. Popular conservative, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio supported Doug Ducey, which sends a strong message and hopefully will serve to hold Ducey’s feet to the fire on issues of importance to conservatives moving forward.

The Arizona Democrat primary ballot resembled that of the former USSR, with one candidate running for most top offices. The lack of choice resulted in a bottom-dragging voter turnout.  The increasingly left-lurching party didn’t even bother to field a candidate for state treasurer, guaranteeing the GOP primary victor, Jeff DeWit will hold that important office.

Rasmussen’s gubernatorial survey map can be seen here. The survey questions are interest piquing, even tossing in a four-step range of favorable to unfavorable rankings for John McCain and his doppelganger Jeff Flake. Just months ago, the Daily Caller noted that the two U.S. Senators from Arizona have managed to sink their poll ratings to record lows, showing McCain at a dismal 30 percent approval rating with the border state voters, and Flake falling even lower to 27 percent approval.

The duo has felt the stinging backlash of weary Republican voters who reject their colluding with Democrats on brazen amnesty schemes that disregard the rule of law and our right to a sovereign, enforceable  border —- while expanding Democrat registrations.

Arizona’s General Election will be held Nov. 4, 2014. Early voting begins Oct. 9. Registration closes Oct. 6 at midnight.

Make sure you’re eligible to vote and then make doing so a priority. Keep Arizona a vibrant red.
